Flat Tires!!

The area is doing well, but a big struggle this past week was in lots of things that took time out from proselyting. On Tuesday, I had to help Elder geigenmiller with the drivers license which took a ton of time away from our area and we also had 3 flat tires this week that were frustrating and took time away from getting out as well. Other than that, the area is doing pretty well, but almost no investigators came to church again which was another disappointment. It's been really hard getting them to church, especially the ones in Groningen. We're still working hard though and in faith and the investigators that we do have are reading and keeping commitments, but just not exercising the faith to come to church. Miguel is doing really well and is continuing to read so we're excited for him. Our active members are doing well though and recovered from their sicknesses so that was great and the talks given on Sunday were awesome! This area is so cool though! I love it here and we're seeing so much progress in our investigators in reading and praying and receiving answers, but they just have to take the leap of faith and to come to church. We're excited for this upcoming Sunday and are expecting a lot to come so we'll see what happens! A spiritual experience that I had this past week was with our investigator Meredise. We taught about the Restoration and about the Book of Mormon and committed her to be baptized and she said the typical, "I've already been baptized." But we talked about Priesthood Authority and testified of Joseph Smith and she was able to understand and accepted the baptismal date! She also had read which prepared her for the lesson, but it was just cool to see the Spirit work in her and teach her. Missions are just awesome and you have so many cool experiences every day! One other cool thing that happened is that we were guided by God to find a less active that we didn't know existed and he promised us in our lesson yesterday that he would read from the Book of Mormon and come to church next week. He really wants to change his life and is just great!

Life is going great and I'm just loving my mission here! Crazy that Tyler is home now! Time is just going too fast and I'm going to do my best to make these last months of my mission count! No regrets! You all are awesome! Love you all! Lobi!
